The overall aim of this review was to attempt to determine the factors that drive high post-16 participation of many minority ethnic groups, through a scoping of the research literature and an in-depth review focusing on interventions.

The key aim of this review was to support current policy initiatives: specifically to support the development of personalised learning by identifying teaching and learning strategies which actively engage and challenge learners, which develop their ability to focus on their learning skills and their capability to take ownership of their own progress. A second aim was to identify evidence from research which helps teachers to understand not just what works in terms of specific teaching approaches in specific contexts but why different approaches are successful.

The research team wished to establish what approaches to measuring children’s education, health and wellbeing outcomes existed in countries with high-performing education systems and how these measurements were used.

Block scheduling is one approach to school scheduling. It typically means that students have fewer classes (4-5) per day, for a longer period of time (70-90 minutes). There are three main types of block schedule investigated in this review.

This knowledge review is about identifying key findings about teaching, learning and assessing communication skills with children in social work education settings. Its main focus is to enable social work educators to apply these findings in the design and implementation of social work programmes. Knowledge review published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in November 2006.

This knowledge review is for people who teach social work (that is, academics, practice teachers and service users) and for researchers. It may also be of interest to students and social care workers. Report published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in June 2006.

This review seeks to determine what social work students might learn about assessment from textbooks and frameworks. It aims to be a resource for social work educators in developing a curriculum and selecting textbooks. The knowledge review is for social work educators who are responsible for teaching assessment, especially those who are responsible for developing the curriculum and selecting textbooks. Review published by the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) in April 2005.
